Events > Hands and Harvest Festival

October 10 - 12, 2014

Celebrate the beauty of Autumn at Highland County's annual Hands & Harvest Fall Foliage Festival. Held on the second weekend in October, this event offers two full days of activity and entertainment. Come and observe for yourself the mountain forests of Virginia's Western Highlands transformed into a rich palette of russet, gold, and scarlet.

Seasonal foods, including apple dumplings, barbecues, Allegheny Mountain Trout, and homemade baked goods will be available in the historic districts of Monterey and McDowell. Take time to explore the back roads by enjoying one of Highland County's Scenic Driving Tours or Barn Quilt Trails.
